3.2 Proportionality: The Effective Use of Dispute Resolution
Presented by the CBA National Alternative Dispute Resolution Section
Clients increasingly are demanding that their disputes be resolved efficiently. Counsel therefore need to know - and in some Canadian jurisdictions are professionally obliged - to advise their clients about the most appropriate dispute resolution method to resolve the case at hand. With the rapid growth of ADR, the importance and necessity of access to credible and skilled mediators, arbitrators and other ADR professionals have taken on heightened significance.
This program features top Canadian practitioners who will share their insights into the latest trends, focusing on mediation, arbitration, ethical issues and cross-Canada developments. The program will provide attendees with information about ADR methodologies, to assist those advising clients, and will provide lawyers who are mediators and arbitrators with substantive information and education. This is a must-attend event for counsel - whether experienced or new to ADR - and for mediators and arbitrators who want to acquire new insights into effective and proportional dispute resolution.
